Description

1. The command is tremendously useful for naive wiki users who add content. It lets them create macros and re-use them at will.

So I suggest that this might deserve an alias {macro } and deserve a description in the wiki syntax help.

Also a slight simplification. If there is no ‘page=”name”’ text but there is {macro “name”} then use “name” anyway.

Any user could do {macro “myheader”} at the top and {macro “myfooter”} at the bottom and {macro “myusualrant”} wherever they want. They just have to make an orphan wiki page for each macro they want.

2. This is so useful and flexible that you might deprecate the “apply content template” thing on the Properties tab. It is hardly any easier to use, and it allows the user to choose only one macro at the beginning. It should keep working for the users who have already used it, but there’s no particular reason for anyone to use it again.

3. To really put the icing on the cake, you might let admins have two macros for each user page, one at the top and one at the bottom. These should not be visible when the user edits the page. So for each page category, the admin could decorate it a special way. Some might automatically get polls or other info visible. Or dancing bunnies, or whatever. It lets admins customize user wiki pages without coding, in ways that are hard to do without coding now. Without annoying users with the displayed calls on their edit pages which they might edit wrongly.

Solution

Put the Include plugin token on the user menu in the wiki editor.

It might be valuable to have this as the default case, or maybe not.
Maybe it would be better to let users make their own Content Menus, and make that choice more prominent. Or maybe not.

Workaround

Solution #1.
Insert

Solution #2.
Content Plugin

Keywords

The following is a list of keywords that should serve as hubs for navigation within the Tiki development and should correspond to documentation keywords.

Each feature in Tiki has a wiki page which regroups all the bugs, requests for enhancements, etc. It is somewhat a form of wiki-based project management. You can also express your interest in a feature by adding it to your profile. You can also try out the Dynamic filter.
